Jacob Banks has announced a show at The Sugar Club on Sunday, December 10th. Tickets are €19.90 including booking fee and go on sale Friday, August 11th from ticketmaster.ie.

Born in Nigeria, Jacob Banks moved to Birmingham in England at the age of 13. Not short of talent, the Brit dabbled in all forms of the creative arts and began singing, playing guitar, and writing songs at the age of 20.

Banks got his start at open mic nights and quickly garnered a following for his commanding vocal presence and daringly intimate songwriting.

His music features richly textured beats, with its 808s and synth play, African inspired grooves, and a soulful disposition that culminates in an unstoppable new sound.

Known for constructing songs that blur genres, packed with the emotional punch of poignant lyrics and a dynamic, spellbinding vocal delivery, Jacob Banks is cementing himself as one of 2017's most promising break-out acts.

The Boy Who Cried Freedom, which received wide critical acclaim, includes powerful singles like 'Unholy War,' and smash hit, 'Chainsmoking,' which TIME Magazine listed as one of the best songs of 2017 so far.

Nylon Magazine raved that the project "gives equal shine to Banks" voice and songwriting skills, highlighting his mastery of metaphors and imagery akin to that of a verified, contemporary poet."

Now, at work on his Interscope Records debut album, Banks hopes to reenergize a genre-blending brand of music for a new generation hoping to be their solace in hard times and a battery pack on a slow Monday morning.
